Description

We wish to purchase an underground drainage septic tank, toilets and associated pipework for our recently renovated external changing rooms. Waste water needs to be discharged from both the showering units and toilets into appropriate drainage pipes to an underground septic tank to meet current guidelines. The club raised significant funds to renovate the changing rooms, however we would like to complete the project.

South Gower RFC is true community club and already plays a key role in the community facilitating Touch Rugby to all age groups (mixed sessions including a Mum's and Daughters session), a partnership with the local running club - The Darth Coastal Runners, and home to Southgate Archery Club.

Rugby Union
A full complement of teams from the Under 7's through to the Youth and Senior (First XV) teams.
We have a number of girls participating lower down the age groups particularly at Under 8's and Under 9's.
We are hoping that female participation will start to move through the club.
The club is fully inclusive.

Gower Dragons Touch Rugby
Touch is an inclusive sport for all ages and abilities. We currently have teams at U11, U13, U15, Youth and Senior - all teams and sessions are of mixed gender. We also have a Mum's and Daughter's session - the South Gower Seahorses who train once a week and play matches against local Ladies teams.

Darth Coastal Runners
The Darth Coastal Runners was set up by a number of ex-SGRFC players to keep fit and raise money (Wales Air Ambulance), and who now organise local running events in association with the community of SGRFC and the surrounding area.
1. The Darth Mannion in March is a 12 mile adventure-run that takes place on the South Gower coast on the final Saturday of the six nations. Runners take on undulating and muddy terrain, some very steep hills, icy riverruns and multiple sea-dips. 200 competitors!
2. The Marathon de Gwyr (MdG) is the Darth Costal Runners’ summer challenge. The MdG consists of 3 consecutive days of fell-running across the stunning Gower peninsula, covering a total distance of 55 miles.
Unlike the Darth Mannion Beach & Swamp Run Challenge (DMBSRC) there are no sea-dips or river runs, just beautiful landscapes and stunning coastline.
3. Darth Minions - Inspiring the younger generation to put down their electronic devices and put on their trainers, the Darth Minions is the latest addition to the Darth portfolio. Whilst including all the elements that have made The Darth Mannion and Marathon de Gwyr so successful, this unique event adds a heady mix of darkness, head torches, glow-sticks, obstacles, youthful exuberance and a whole lot of childish fun. November and June (annually)
4. Regular Saturday am sessions – Guided running – 3/6/9 mile distances.

Southgate Archery Club have a home at SGRFC and use the facilities during the Summer season.

Fitness Class - once a week - strength and conditioning class - open to all above 16 years.

South Gower RFC see's itself as an integral part of the local community providing sporting opportunities for all ages, genders and backgrounds in a fully inclusive atmosphere of professional volunteers.
